To cut your design to the correct size, the Makerspace provides circle paper punches for each button size.

How do I use it? 

Makerspace Staff will instruct the use of the machine. *Call in advance to ensure availability.

What do I need to bring?

Bring your designs (printed or drawn) on standard copy paper. Buttons cannot be created with paper any thicker than standard copy paper. This will jam the machine.
